Napa Cellars Zinfandel is the perfect middle ground between the spicy Zinfandels of the Sierra Foothills and the fruity jammy Zinfandels of Sonoma. Both characteristics can be found in moderation with this wine.
The Napa Cellars 2014 Zinfandel boasts bright aromas of fresh blackberries, tart cherry and hints of rose petal. The aromas lead to lush flavors of ripe jam with notes of mocha, spice, subtle pepper and sweet notes of oak on the finish. This wine is medium-bodied with bright acidity and a smooth, juicy and lasting mouthfeel. Winemaker Joe Shirley recommends pairing this wine with chicken cacciatore or a well-seasoned steak topped with fresh basil.
